The University of Toledo College of Business Administration has announced six finalists for this year’s Human Resource Management Award for Excellence, which will be presented Wednesday, May 20, at 8 a.m. during the Toledo Area Human Resource Association’s year-end banquet at the Hilton Garden Inn in Perrysburg.

The award was established in 1998 to recognize outstanding employers that demonstrate commitment, innovation and leadership in the field of HR management.

“Amidst this very challenging economy, this year’s finalists are doing an outstanding job of creating company practices that improve personnel performances,” said Dr. Clint Longenecker, UT professor of management and chair of the HR award selection committee.

This year’s finalists are HR departments from E.S. Wagner Co., Mennel Milling, Luther Home of Mercy, Toledo Edison, St. Luke’s Hospital and TNS-NA

Winning departments will receive a commemorative award, and their names will be inscribed on a plaque displayed in the UT College of Business Administration.

This event will include remarks from Longenecker; Scott Gearig, principal of the Mergis Group; Drs. Laurence Fink, Dale Dwyer and Sheri Caldwell of the UT College of Business Administration and selection committee members; Don Reiber, UT assistant professor of communication; and Jack Hollister, president of the Employer’s Association.
